Bigot of the Week Award: April 19, Linda Harvey and Mission America

Bigot of the Week

Bigot of the Week

Regular readers of SJFA will be familiar with Linda Harvey, founder and spokeshater for the odious Mission:America. Harvey has had dishonorable mention before; thanks to my friend Jennifer Carey for highlighting her actions this week that promote her to full-fledge BWA winner.

As LGBT students and their allies around the country prepare for the annual Day of Silence, Harvey is leading her usual parade of lies and bigotry. Arguing that her KKKristian message that keeping LGBT kids safe in schools “encourages sympathy for homosexuality, which is wrong,” our Linda is as charm-free as ever.

Those of us who truly have a Christian worldview, we do not accept the terms, definitions and claims of the advocates of homosexuality, like the claim that standing up against homosexuality and calling it a sin is hateful and is similar to bully. No, it’s not.

Yes, it is.

Bullying and violence against LGBT Americans are still enormous problems; suicides and suicide attempts by LGBT teens are still being reported in horrific numbers. This is true because people like Linda Harvey think that their narrow, hateful “values” are more important that the lives and happiness of millions of people who simply want to be allowed to live freely as themselves.

GLSEN has created a strong video that debunks Harvey’s most recent spewing of bile. Please join in support of today’s Day of Silence and stand against this ongoing attack from people who hide behind flawed religious arguments to destroy lives.

    As well all know, Jesus stood for bullying gay Americans when he said in the Bible:
    “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” (John 15:12-13). Wait…. that’s not it… That’s all about loving your fellow man regardless.
    How about “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” (Matthew 25). Dang it no, that suggests that doing harm to “sinners” is equivalent to harming Jesus.
    Maybe it’s here: “if anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.” (John 4:19-20) No, that’s about how hate is not equivalent to loving God… Maybe John has it here: “Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother.” (John 3:10) Darn it again no!!
    Okay, I’ve got it…: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'” (Matthew 22:27-29). Wait… WHAT? Love your neighbor?
    My Bible must be broken. Jesus just keeps talking about loving your neighbor, being kind to all, not hating people… He doesn’t even mention homosexuality. Wait.. was this Bible altered by the Gay agenda?
